If you have samples, please post them. thanks
A time machine and direct sunlight.
Which one???? Seems like there are a ton of different bursts.
Any of them. Something that looks as authentic as possible on a 1950s body.
I don't know if he has the time to do re-fins anymore but in his day, Scott Lentz has done some beautiful work on old Les Pauls.
Authentic, I don't know. Heres one I'm working on. Supposed to be like a Brockburst. Pretty strong color.
Heres my Jimmy Page Custom Authentic. I don't know how Authentic it is.
Scott will still do original '50s and '60s guitars.
Gustavson does the best burst finish I have ever seen in my life. Those things just ooooze old school mojo. I wish I had the patience to wait for one! LOL!!!
+1 Dave. The tops are incredibly realistic. I can stand the wait, maybe not the $7,200 pricetag though.
I agree, has anyone here had him do a 50s body for them? I'd like to understand logistics, wait time and cost.
Kinda like a scarlet red? It looks good!
When you look at a real 'burst it has this glow to the finish. I want something similar to that. What I had in mind was a honey/tea 'burst. Like 9 1234. A nice orangy, amber glow.
I'm sure there are half a dozen painters who could pull that off. NIce color by the way. I either tend to like the strong colors, or the very faded ones.
That ones not to tuff. I don't think you'll have any problem getting it done.
If you run into problems, let me know or give me a call at the shop
Brian...what are you going to get re-finned?
Glad to see you back in the Les Paul camp......
Thanks guys. Nothing to show yet. Should be soon though...
